For Monday

Wednesday audio.

Final points on RPI, going to overlapping statutory and constitutional/§ 1983 actions and when a statutory claim precludes a constitutional claim under § 1983. RPI Commentaries due on Monday, February 13.

We then turn to Actions Against Federal Officials, the Bivens action and its progeny. Here is the oral argument in Ziglar v. Abbassi; there is a lot to this argument, including pleading and qualified immunity (which we will get to soon), but it gives you a feel of the issues and future of Bivens actions. Panel III is on for this.
